When a retired Army Corporal was told he had an inoperable vascular condition, instead of feeling sorry for himself, he immediately started thinking of others.
Andy McIntosh is now about to undertake a rather unusual world record attempt for charity.
He's hoping to become the fastest man to travel the length of the country in a mobility scooter.
If all goes well, it'll take him just over two weeks to get from John-O’-Groats to Land’s End.
